The Number 23 (2007)
23: Comedy of the year!
I saw a screening for this film... And the best part of the film is when the reel snapped and they had to re-splice it together. I really wanted this to be a great movie, I think Jim Carrey is absolutely wonderful in dramatic roles. I didn't realize until I sat down in the packed theater, that the director was none other than the batman killed, Senor Joel himself. I let that slide, hey, lost boys is good... when you're drunk. So, the premise was interesting, until I thought about it, then it just made me want to leave the theater. Jim Carrey does pretty decently, in the beginning, but in the final few scenes, when his acting skills are needed the most, he fails and the audience did nothing but laugh. Now, I don't blame the performance on Jim Carrey, an actor can only be as good as the man directing him..... Point made, this movie, other than being a laugh riot, was terrible. The first act was decent and then it spiralled to hell from there.
My favorite part of this movie... SPOILERS AHEAD.... Is when Jim Carrey sinks into madness and decides to stay at a hotel.... Now he brings clothes for the night, that's it.... And he sees this magical dog outside that he's been chasing, that follows him everywhere, so Jim magically grabs a tranquilizer gun, which mind you was the size of a shot gun, from his jacket and chases after this dog..... Because when I go out for the night, I bring my magical jacket that can hide my giant ass tranq gun, because who knows when you'll need a tranq gun. I'd love to describe the wonderous dialogue at the end, but I feel some people need to see it for themselves, but do me a favor... DO NOT PAY FOR THIS MOVIE, sure it's funny, but not worth anything more than $1 to see, and I'm being generous...
Joel fails to do anything interesting in this film and it is so sad to see really talented actors waste their time with this.
Stay Alive (2006)
This movie was obviously cut down from R to PG-13. It was nevertheless enjoyable, a few creepy scenes. Blood and guts do not make a horror film, lets remember that. Because this movie was cut down, a few scenes don't make sense. But after seeing the previews we all know this isn't going to be the next cult classic, it was fun. Just enjoy for what it is.
This movie was basically The Ring meets Brainscan (A Edward furlong film from the 90s) It follows a group of kids who find a horror game. They play the game and start realizing when you die in the game, you die in real life. It has a ridiculous amount of pop culture references. But the creepier scenes in the movie really worked well.
